Andy Warhol's Little Red Hen for Sale

The artist, who became famous for his pop art creations, including multi-colored screen prints of well-known people (think Marilyn Monroe), was a book illustrator early in his career.
One of those books was the cautionary tale of the Little Red Hen, who toiled while the lazy cat, dog, and mouse shirked, and four drawings from this are to go under the hammer.
At a recent sale of contemporary art, a Warhol print of a set of one-dollar bills went for $43,800,000.00.
The Little Red Hen drawings are expected to fetch $600.
Warhol is also known for coining the phrase "famous for 15 minutes."
